Nuevo Baztán Historic-Artistic Complex
Just 45 kilometres (28 miles) from Madrid, a small but magnificent Baroque settlement.
An 18th-century gem of a town.
Surprising though it might seem, the town of Nuevo Baztán, 45 kilometres (28 miles) outside the city of Madrid, is essentially a little chunk of Spain's northern region of Navarre. Its history is linked to 18th-century entrepreneur Juan de Goyeneche, who in 1709 charged architect José Benito Churriguera with building a settlement to house his glass factory and the workers in it. He named it New Baztán after the Navarra valley he originally came from. Nowadays, the town has 6,000 inhabitants, which rises considerably in the summer tourist season . Its atmospheric Baroque old quarter was declared a Historic Artistic Monument in 1941, its main components being a palace, a church, and two plazas.
